CEMS: Three Awards for WU

A first in CEMS’ 25-year history: WU received a total of three Best Course Awards for its Master’s in International Management/CEMS program. The awards were presented during the Graduation Ceremony in Barcelona last weekend.

A total of three Best Course Awards for the Master’s in International Management/CEMS program went to WU this year. Each year, CEMS conducts a student evaluation of all CEMS courses offered worldwide, and awards three prizes for the best courses: best Global Strategic Management course, best Cross Cultural Management course, and best elective. WU received awards in all three categories. The awards were presented last weekend during the Graduation Ceremony in Barcelona.

Awards confirm outstanding quality

Three Best Course Awards for the WU CEMS MIM program under the direction of Jonas Puck: This success represents a first in CEMS’ 25-year history. The program is part of the CEMS Global Alliance in Management Education, consisting of 29 universities on four continents around the world. “I am very pleased with this confirmation that our program meets the highest international quality standards,” says Puck. “It just goes to show how our highly motivated faculty, staff, and students live the ‘CEMS spirit’ every day and in everything they do.” Moritz Putzhammer and Thomas Lindner, both CEMS students at WU, agree, “That’s just what we have experienced in this program. At WU, outstanding teaching is accompanied by an excellent relationship between faculty and students.”

The course Global Leadership, taught by Günter Stahl and Josef Waltl, was selected as the best elective. Stahl, from WU’s Institute for International Business, commented, “I find it incredibly enriching to teach this course, because it always leads to very interesting discussions, and both the students and I benefit greatly from Dr. Waltl’s many years of experience as a top manager at one of the largest global corporations.” The class selected to win the best Global Strategic Management course award is taught by Stefan Stubner, and the winning Cross Cultural Management course by Mark Mendenhall.

CEMS: The Master’s International Management/CEMS program is one of the world’s best Master in Management programs (Financial Times) and is offered by only one university in each country. The courses Global Strategic Management and Cross Cultural Management are two of the supporting pillars of the program. CEMS partner universities include the London School of Economics (UK), HEC Paris (FR), the University of St Gallen (CH), Ivey School of Business (CAN), and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HK).
